Travel Document Reminder  

Posted on 4 Aug 2017

Kindly be reminded that securing a visa or the necessary travel documents for entry in to another country is the sole responsibility of all Guests, and should be strictly adhered to.

Visa procedures and processing times vary greatly depending on the passport you hold and the country you are traveling to. As such, please allow sufficient time for visa application and approval prior to your departure as you may be denied entry or boarding if you fail to provide a valid visa or travel documentation.  You may refer to our Travel Documents page for more information on such procedures. However, where the information is insufficient, you are strongly recommended to follow the immigration guidelines of the port of entry of your final destination.

Guests denied entry to the port of entry as a result of insufficient travel documents will be liable for all costs associated with their return to the port of departure including any fines and repatriation costs.

The safety of our Guests and crew is our top priority. Please be advised that all electronic devices in your check-in baggage should be securely packed in your luggage to prevent damage and switched off completely. This is done in compliance with IATA’s travel restriction with immediate effect.
